I just turned 42 and find myself fat and unfit. I haven’t trained at all in around 10 years, an RL issue (non medical) stopped me training for a while but instead of getting back in to training when everything was sorted out I became lazy and sedentary.
Weight 15.6 Stone
Turning 42 and looking into the mirror made me realise I need to do something about my current state of fitness, I am not looking to become a fitness model or star athlete, just want not to look like the rear end of a Hippo and that I can take my T shirt of without having to wear a plastic bag over my head
I know the first thing to tackle is my current state of fat laden, greasy and extremely unhealthy eating, I would say my diet is the popular See Food and eat it diet.
A few things to note is due to my work I don’t have hours to spend working out, so looking for a routine that can be done 3 or 4 days a week in less than an hour max and preferably at home. I do have a garage gym that I can dust the cobwebs of. The Ultimate Minimalist Training routine looks interesting.
My gym consists of the following
Full Bench and Bar (160kg set)
Lat Pulldown Station
Adjustable Dumbbells (2kg - 32kg)
16kg / 24kg Kettlebells
Did try a pullup for the first time in 10 years, really surprised I actually got my chin to the bar, maybe there is still hope after all (took me 2 hours to recover though, haha)
So looking for any advice and applicable training routines for a 42 year old guy that wants to get into any shape other than Doughnut shape.
Feel free to ask any relevant questions or even to poke at the oversized piñata.
